Windows 7: New install of Win 7 Home Prem. 64, driver ?'s

New install of Win 7 Home Prem. 64, driver ?'s

The install went fine, from XP Pro 32 to Win. 7 64 Home Prem.. I have noticed that MOST drivers (Device Mgr.) are from M$, they are all working fine, NO problems.

I have a Asus P6T motherboard which came w/an Intel X58 / ICH10R chipset, onboard LAN Realtek 8111c and onboard Audio Realtek ACL1200.

In Device Mgr.:
The onboard Audio shows as - High Definition Audio Device, M$ Driver from 2010

The onboard LAN shows as - Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller, Realtek Driver, ver. 7.46.610.2011

The Intel Chipset shows up under "System Devices" along with many other Intel(R) items, all have M$ drivers from 2006, ver. 6.1.7601.17514

Win 7 seems to work differently than XP pro and I am still getting used to Win 7, even though everything works I would like to install a Realtek driver for the Audio, updated Intel Chipset drivers and possibly updated LAN driver, if possible.

I have found drivers from the Realtek site for Win.7 64 audio and LAN, also from the ASUS site.

The Intel Chipset driver is another story, not sure if I am looking in the right place on the Intel site for the X58

I know "if it ain't broke - don't fix it" this is a computer, you have to "mess" with it

Some help will be appreciated

Joe

Please bare with me here, I am trying to grasp what will happen with this update -

If I just "run" the .exe file will ALL the Intel drivers in "system devices" be changed and updated to Intel ?

or

Do I have to go to the Asus site for my MB Chipset driver 1st, save that driver and use "device mgr" to update all 17 Intel entries, and would I have to do each entry or could I delete all 17, reboot and then install the Asus chipset driver, reboot and then use the link that Maxie referred to ?

I know when I did this with my XP OS I already had the Intel drivers from the beginning

These 2 attachments may help

Thanks again


Joe

OK, I ran the .exe file from Intel, now in Device Mgr. some of the items I have circled in the above attachment show as Intel drivers and some do not (still M$), also some items under "general" tab show "no drivers installed"

Device Mgr. is clean - nothing red or yellow showing

Could you explain what is going on ?

Sorry if I am being a PITA

Hi again .. Those Devices are linked to the intel management engine .. It is different to Chipset Driver .. There is no point really trying to run an update as it will not improve any thing
